If you are looking to get a bit healthier and still want to eat meat, then this is the blog post for you. Meat can be easily enjoyed as part of a healthy, balanced diet as it provides us with protein as well as countless essential vitamins and minerals.

Here at Kimber’s Farm Shop, we celebrate British framers and everything we sell is lovingly produced and locally sourced. We have assembled a list of delicious and healthy meat and poultry filled recipes for you to enjoy, completely guilt-free.

Beef

Our home produced Aberdeen Angus Grass-Fed Beef offers fantastic, sumptuous flavour and is a versatile meal choice. Beef is also an exemplary source of protein and contains many necessary micronutrients. BBC Goodfood’s Pot-Roast Beef with French Onion Gravy recipe works best with the leaner silverside or topside cuts of beef and has less than 500kcal per serving and less than 1g of salt.

Goat

Goat meat is a greatly underestimated and underappreciated meat with a mild yet distinctive flavour. It is naturally low in calories, total fat, saturated fat and cholesterol and contains high levels of minerals iron and potassium. Our diced goat can be used to make a warming, delicious and nutritious Goat Curry, perfect for the cold winter nights.

Venison

Our range of game meat, including venison, is locally sourced from Somerset, Wiltshire and Dorset. Venison contains high amounts of various B vitamins which help break down protein, carbs and fat for energy. Use our venison steak to make Venison Steak with Port Sauce, rich and flavoursome this recipe is perfect for beef-lovers.

Chicken

Chicken has always been a popular choice when it comes to lean protein with the breast considered an excellent option for those trying to lose weight. This is thanks to its high protein and low-fat content. All of our chicken is fresh, free-range, and locally sourced from Cracknell’s farm where the birds have unlimited access to 22 acres of grassy Somerset pasture. The delectable and tangy Lemon & Garlic Roasted Chicken is only 234kcal per service and contains zero sugar.

Lambs Liver

Liver has fallen out of favour over the years, however, it is a worthy addition to anyone's diet. Regarded as one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet, it exceeds the recommended daily intake for vitamin B12, vitamin A, riboflavin and copper. Our lambs are homegrown and allowed to mature slowly, as nature intended. Why not try our deliciously delicate lambs liver in a Liver & Red Pepper Stir-fry.

Turkey

Turkey, while usually reserved for Christmas, can and should be enjoyed year-round. Turkey breast mince is naturally lean and high in protein and makes a fantastic alternative to beef mince. Turkey Chilli is a delicious, rich and flavourful, take on traditional chilli con carne and is sure to become a staple recipe in your collection.
